Carmine Giovinazzo may have a DUI on his record, but at least he was apparently polite about it! The "CSI: NY" star, 39, was arrested for driving under the influence in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Jan. 2, with police reporting that he was "immediately apologetic."
According to the report (via E! News), Giovinazzo, who lives in California, initially claimed he was lost and distracted trying to work his GPS. But the actor, who plays Detective Danny Messer on the CBS drama, then confessed to drinking scotch at the nearby W hotel before driving himself and friends.
After being given a field sobriety test and blowing nearly twice the legal limit, he was booked at a nearby jail.
Giovinazzo's arresting officer noted in his report that the star "thanked me many times for not treating him like a criminal and showing him respect." He added, "Carmine was very polite and cooperative with me throughout the investigation."
The actor is recently single. In August 2012 his wife, Vanessa Marcil, filed for divorce after two years of marriage citing "irreconcilable differences."
